The Costume Institute’s In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, launches a two-part exploration of fashion in the United States at The Met Fifth Avenue! This exhibition uses the organizing principle of a patchwork quilt - the signature quilt begun in 1856 from The Met's American Wing collection opens the show and serves as a metaphor for the United States and its varied cultural identities! Follow the Get Tickets links to reserve your spot and for more information.

Featuring approximately 100 men’s and women’s ensembles by a diverse range of designers from the 1940s to the present! Enclosed in scrimmed cases that represent three-dimensional “patches” of a quilt, which are organized into 12 sections that explore defining emotional qualities including Nostalgia, Belonging, Delight, Joy, Wonder, Affinity, Confidence, Strength, Desire, Assurance, Comfort, and Consciousness!
